New Website for Arkansas State University’s Arkansas Heritage Sites
As many of you know, the Lakeport Plantation is part of Arkansas State University’s Arkansas Heritage Sites program. There are now four Heritage Sites: Lakeport, the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum in Piggott, the Southern Tenant Farmers Museum in Tyronza, and the most recent addition, the Historic Dyess Colony: Boyhood Home of Johnny Cash. The program also includes the ASU Museum, as well as the Arkansas Delta Byways, which promotes tourism in the 15 county region.
Now there is a single website for all of ASU’s Heritage Sites (thanks to the work of Rachel Miller, a graduate student in Heritage Studies program at ASU). The website gives an overview of programs, with links to all of the individual Heritage Sites’ web pages.
